Zwielichtig – Mächtig – Verdüsternd

oder: sind meine lilafarbenen Bücher schlauer als der Rest?

Powerpoint Presentation


This was a Lecture Performance about a weird thing I noticed in my bookshelf. My purple books seem to be way smarter than the rest of them. I talked about various research efforts and the possible implications. There where also some failed attempts to make art from this. Basic color theory. Itten. Goethe. Some thoughts on conceptual art. A bruised toe. Friedrich-Nietzsche-Blue. Bonnie Tyler. Courntey Love and Prince. The Meat Puppets. Gestalt Psychology. Epilepsy. A face on Mars. And always the question:
«Does this get us anywhere?»
